A young woman will be cited for jaywalking after she was hit by a vehicle Friday night when she walked into traffic on Brown Street near the University of Dayton.
According to Dayton police sergeant, a preliminary investigation concluded that the young woman, whose age and name was not given, walked across Brown opposite the Panera bread restaurant, 1203 Brown St., at about 7 p.m. when she was struck.
One vehicle missed her. A second one hit her as she was attempting to cross in the direction of the restaurant, the officer said.
The young woman suffered bumps and bruises, and was taken to Miami Valley Hospital. It was not known whether the person was a UD student.
The driver was not cited. The sergeant said construction on Brown Street, which has restricted traffic to one lane, has made it difficult for drivers to see pedestrians.
